Rapper T.I. has written an open letter to outgoing U.S. President Barack Obama thanking him for the impact he made on the nation during his time in office.
The Live Your Life star has written a series of open letters for The New York Times, one to Obama, another to President-elect Donald Trump and to America’s citizens, and the first, to Obama, was published on Friday.
The POTUS, Barack Obama says he would have won the seat for the third time had he contested with the business mogul turned politician, Donald Trump. In an interview broadcast on Monday that he would have won most Americans’ support if he had been able to run against Donald Trump for a third term.
John Legend has written an open letter to the POTUS urging him to make history by bringing justice to the thousands of families of non-violent drug offenders” before he leaves office because he wasn’t sure the Trump administration would do anything about it. The letter which was published in RollingStone reads:
The president of United States-Barrack Obama has taken to Facebook to express concern about the rampant shooting of black men by police in United States—following the fatal shootings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. Last night, the President beyond sympathizing with the families and sharing the anger of the many black people in the States said Americans must admit they have a serious issue at hand which must be dealt with appropriately. He said: “To admit we’ve got a serious problem in no way contradicts our respect and appreciation for the vast majority of police officers who put their lives on the line to protect us every single day. It is to say that, as a nation, we can and must do better to institute the best practices that reduce the appearance or reality of racial bias in law enforcement.” Since Obama’s message, about 5 police men have been shot in cold blood by snipers during protests in Dallas, Texas.
“Africa doesn’t need Strong Men, it needs Strong Institutions” is a statement passed by current President of America, Barrack Obama, to Ghana’s Parliament, when he visited Ghana on the 11th July, 2009.
Since the time Obama made those remarks, till date, every social commentator, politician, political analysts or lecturers, social feature columnists in some print media, Economists, and other people in academia, ALWAYS quote Obama and say the latter’s advice, is what Africa actually need.
I’ve pondered over what Obama said all these years and after doing so, I totally disagree with his avouchment. Indeed, what he said makes less sense to me because, I feel the converse of what he said, is rather true or should rather be the case.
Point is, human beings create systems and not the other way round – so if human beings, or men, are not strong, they can’t make strong institutions. This is common sense! I have not had any duologue with Obama to explain to me what he actually meant nor have I had the privilege to read the actual speech he read when he came to Ghana.
But, ‘strong’ as Obama used, was or is not about machismo, physiques, or brons, but brains! I strongly believe Obama actually meant, once we have strong institutions – as in, institutions that are: effective, efficient, transparent, corruption-free, accountable, and have general positive orientation, most of the social-economic problems in Ghana, Africa for that matter, can highly be overcome. That is 100% true!
Is the whole of Africa ready for Gay Rights? The answer is a BIG No since we are unable to enforce and respect the basic rights we currently have. Nevertheless, Gays have rights too just that Africa seems not ready to go that way (give constitutional backing to such rights)—YET. This has not stopped President … Read more
